Most of the year, Khorezm is a fruit and vegetable loverís delight. During the summer and autumn months, bazaar stalls groan with mounds of fresh and tasty produce the envy of organic farmers world-wide. Tomatoes really taste like tomatoes and apricots are soft and sweet. The long hot summers ensure a lengthy growing season with early, middle and late harvests although the current drought and ensuing water shortages are making domestic vegetable growing increasingly difficult. The advent of greenhouses and imported fruit such as mandarins, oranges and bananas have added to the availability and variety of fruit and vegetables within this desert oasis although during winter and early spring, fresh produce can be scant.
